As one of Australasia’s most skilled tunnelling contractors we’re renowned for our road header, TBM, pipe-jacking and micro tunnelling expertise and our capacity to provide fully integrated engineering and construction solutions. Our expertise covers the whole range of tunnelling from specialist soft ground techniques (full faced balanced earth pressure machines) through to hard rock tunnelling using TBMs, drill/blast and roadheader methods.
Our technical expertise is matched by intuitive relationship management skills and our capacity to perform works under various contract types including joint venture, early contractor involvement, public private partnership, and design and construct.
Some of our notable tunnelling and underground projects include:
